A BRIDGE will be closed for five weeks for critical waterproofing and resurfacing.
Work on the Glynde Bridge near Lewes begins on Monday 12th September.
Station Road at the south end of Lacys Hill will be closed for five weeks for work on the bridge crossing Glynde Reach.
Brick walls are repointed and the steel railings are painted.
Pedestrians can continue to use the bridge during the works, but traffic will be diverted via the A27, A26, Ringmer Road and New Road.
A spokesman for East Sussex Highways said: “We are aware that this road closure will cause some disruption to motorists but it is important to ensure the safety of the public and workers while repairs are carried out.
“Investigations have shown that water has entered through the bridge, which can damage the structure and contribute to the formation of potholes in the road surface.
“Repairing the waterproof membrane and resurfacing will protect the bridge and result in a smoother ride for motorists using this stretch of road.”
